Cool Speed protects processor integrity by reducing power-states when
a temperature limit is reached.
Promotes significant power savings. C1E detects when processor cores
are idle: HyperTransport links are powered down, and the cores go into
a deeper sleep state.
Enhanced APML with Precision Thermal Monitor
APML is the interface for monitoring and controlling system resources,
and Precision Thermal Monitor closely monitors power/cooling, and
proactively alerts the Base Management Controller (BMC).
- Memory – Quad Channel U/RDDR3 at 800MHz, 1066MHz,
